Do you also request "-l mem_free=..."? In principle it's possible to set up (by setting "load_formula -mem_free"), but why do you want to do so? You request a resource like h_vmem / virtual_free / mem_free* and get a node where at least such an amount is available.

When you request (independent from the load) always the node with the most free space instead of filling memory gaps on already used nodes, it might block the following jobs with a larger request.
